She's owning up to it!
Jenelle Evans’ substance abuse through her motherhood has been a well-documented affliction. She’s spent her time on the business end of the criminal justice system as a result, but she’s also often vocalized it on Teen Mom 2. She’s known for some famous lines, like yelling “I like to smoke about this time of the day, and all this s**t is keeping me to where I can’t go do it!” at her mother!
She has since kicked the habit — at least, publicly. However, many fans have speculated that Jenelle’s long bathroom breaks may be accompanied by a bong. Jenelle is free to choose what to do with her own life, but when it appeared this would affect her children, fans became enraged.
Jenelle gave birth to her daughter Ensley a year ago, and numerous people in her life have leveled serious accusations against her. Loudest among them was Nathan Griffith’s mother, Doris, who accused Jenelle of being high on marijuana when she gave birth to Ensley. Doris’s claims, and her attempt to grab custody of her grandson Kaiser, were eventually dismissed, but the rumors remained.
Now, the moment that no one dreamed of is here. Jenelle is admitting to her drug use. She’s just dropped the bombshell that no one expected: she was high on THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, when she gave birth to Ensley!
Jenelle Evans has put up her dukes against Leah Messer and Kailyn Lowry after they spilled some unpleasant rumors about her on Kailyn’s podcast. She decided to take her retaliation into her own hands by starring on a podcast of her own to take them down.
However, she may not have expected to reveal a huge bombshell about herself.
Jenelle brings up her “haters” who often claim that Jenelle has been covering up her daughter’s secret malady.
“They were saying it was at the hospital when [Ensley] was born,” the host asks. “Is that true? If the baby tests positive, you can’t take the baby home, right?”
“Oh yeah!” Jenelle admits. “I’m not going to lie about that.” She reveals:
“I tested positive for THC and Ensley did not test positive, I did. So CPS [asked], ‘Did you smoke while you were pregnant?’ I said ‘I did within the past 30 days… I have really bad esophageal spasms and I throw up every 5 minutes, can’t even eat.’ [CPS] said, ‘Okay, some moms do that; we’re not here to judge.’”
She revealed that CPS planned to do a wellness check on Ensley after she was born. “Everything [was fine]; they closed the case,” she said. She revealed that CPS had come to her home numerous times due to “haters online who say that [she abuses] her kids.”
Jenelle chalked her marijuana use up to her esophageal disease during her podcast appearance, claiming that Doris’s attempts to bring it up are nothing more than a custody grab for Kaiser. However, fans on simply weren’t buying it. It doesn’t help that the court documents indicate that Ensley did indeed test positive for drugs at birth, which Jenelle denied.
In court documents obtained by Radar Online, it was claimed that “DSS became involved due to Ensley testing positive for marijuana and opened an investigation. Upon information and belief, both Plaintiff and David had positive drug screens for marijuana.”
Doris claimed that Jenelle “has an extensive history of drug use,” that returned while she was pregnant with Ensley. She continued, “Upon the birth of Ensley, the newborn tested positive for marijuana.”
